congrats on the Windy City publication, Kim.

I've been doing a lot of memoir-type writing, and trying to decide how best to use it all for fiction.

congratulations again on your acceptance!

I finished my novel!

I'm starting my short story.

Still don't know what novel to write next!

Yikes, I registered for NaNoWriMo. Why why why do I do these things to myself?

I am doing NaNo, too.

So I think I have all my original goals for the year complete except the final one, which I'm working on now! A novel with intent to query an agent. :D

Good old NaNoWriMo. I changed my mind about my "novel" already. Did an almost complete outline, then stopped writing altogether. My husband has a cool idea I'd like to help him with...

New/old goal is to continue sending stories out to publications, contests, online journals, and hope to get published!

63,800 words in - My goal for 2013 is to get this first draft finished!

Aiming for 80,000 words - is that long enough?

depends on the genre and stuff but I'd say 80,000 is a good average number!
